Finance available with V12 Finance

Hit the roads with sheer velocity on the professional-grade S-Works Tarmac SL8 – SRAM RED AXS by Specialized. Experience the fusion of aerodynamics, reduced weight, and supreme ride quality like never before; our Ride Science team has ensured that this bike is the fastest on the routes that matter, leaving you to hit your peak performance effortlessly.The Tarmac SL8 boasts numerous features that make it an optimized speed machine on the track:

  • Aero in Every Aspect: We've focussed aerodynamics where it truly matters. Thanks to a sharper head tube leading edge and the most aero seat post design, this bike shows exceptional performance even under high wind resistance.
  • Minimum Weight, Maximum Aero: Built easily at the UCI minimum with a full aero setup, the Tarmac SL8 is lighter than any other bike on the World Tour. As a result, we've made redundancies in areas such as additional carbon stiffness layers, focusing on a lean, mean, racing machine.
  • Rides Like Heaven: With an improvement of 33% in stiffness-to-weight over the SL7, the Tarmac SL8 offers improved handling, aggressive responsiveness and unmatched comfort. Regardless of rider size, everyone can experience the unique, supple feel as they glide over rough roads on this bike.
  • Beyond Gender: We recognize more difference between two cyclists than between genders. Hence, the Tarmac SL8 caters to all riders, regardless of gender. It's time to go Beyond Gender.
  • Elite Components: The bike comes equipped with the finest components - a complete SRAM RED AXS groupset with power meter and a Roval Rapide CLX II tubeless-ready wheelset complementing the world's fastest frame.

The S-Works Tarmac SL8 – SRAM RED AXS isn’t just a bike; it’s a testament to innovation and the relentless pursuit of speed. Step onto the saddle, and prepare to push your limits.
